In one of the most shocking stories of the year, it was announced last month that Cristiano Ronaldo had his Manchester United contract terminated. This comes after Ronaldo’s explosive interview with Piers Morgan that saw him take aim at the club, the manager and many more.
In a statement put out last month, Manchester United wrote: “Cristiano Ronaldo is to leave Manchester United by mutual agreement, with immediate effect.
“The club thanks him for his immense contribution across two spells at Old Trafford, scoring 145 goals in 346 appearances, and wishes him and his family well for the future.
“Everyone at Manchester United remains focused on continuing the team’s progress under Erik ten Hag and working together to deliver success on the pitch.”
With Ronaldo now a free agent, he is already being linked with a host of clubs.
One of which has been Saudi Arabian outfit Al Nassr. However, a move to Saudi Arabia is seemingly not on the cards.
Reports had been circulating that Ronaldo was set to embark on a Middle East adventure with Al-Nassr but following Portugal’s win over Switzerland, the man himself gave a simple response to those rumours, saying: “No that’s not true - not true.”
Bayern Munich CEO Oliver Kahn ruled out the German champions from making a move for Ronaldo last week which means one of the only teams still featuring in the Champions League that are interested in Ronaldo is Chelsea.
